[Resolved] twenty twelve CSS Stylesheet Editor dashboard appearance edit css

  • wp 3.51 with twenty twelve child theme

    When editing the child style.css by going to Dashboard – Appearance – Editor the child style sheet is located in the child directory.

    When editing the style sheet with the CSS Stylesheet Editor by going to Dashboard – Appearance – Edit CSS where is this style sheet located?

    I’m not sure I understand what you are asking. If you have a child theme, you should only make changes in the child theme style.css file – which only contains your changes. Try using Firebug to work with CSS – you can use it to find the CSS code and then copy that code to your child style.css file and change to what you want.

    It sounds like you have some kind of plugin with a second “Edit CSS” option in your “Appearance” menu, correct?

    Sorry for not being clear enough, will try again.

    When editing the child stlye.css using
    Dashboard – Appearance – Editor
    the location of the edited child style.css is:
    /themes/child-theme/style.css

    When editing the style sheet by going to
    Dashboard – Appearance – Edit CSS
    changes take effect but there are no changes made to the child style.css located at:
    /themes/child-theme/style.css
    What is the location of the style sheet that is changed by
    Dashboard – Appearance – Edit CSS ?

    Installed plugins are
    Askimet, jetpack by wordpress.com, w3 total cache, wordpress seo.

    Ah, okay, the Edit CSS is jetpack custom CSS – which is also a perfectly fine place to make changes. You won’t lose those. But you might want to just stick to one or the other — just because it can get a bit confusing if you scatter your CSS in multiple places.

    Thanks everyone. Edit Css is the custom css module of the jetpack plugin in. Will deactivate it and stick with the child style.css

    I would guess it might be somewhere in the Jetpack plugin folder, but I never used that when I had Jetpack. Like WPyogi is saying, I would just stick with one style.css, and the one inside your Child Theme is not dependent upon a plugin to exist.
